Stationery Gift for Mel



I made this stationery box for my sister Demo, Mel, who is moving in a couple of weeks. I got the pattern and instructions from Jackie Topa. I used Old Olive and Bashful Blue cardstock, Summer Picnic DSP and the hostess stamp set "In the Spotlight".
The box has a pen, an address book, some stamps, 4 small cards, 4 gift tags and 8 "normal" sized cards. I thought it had everything she needs to keep in touch with her friends after she moves.
This was really fun to make!
